My Pic-a-POD program <http://www.troz.net/Pic-a-POD/index.html> does
this. It uses Trevor's QT external to convert the picture to bmp and
then Shao Sean's external to set the desktop. I only have the Mac
version on this computer, but if you download the Windows version,
it's About contains links to both those externals.

Cheers,
Sarah
